Roast: NA Review Date: October 1999
Origin: Yirgacheffe growing region, northern Sidamo province, south-central Ethiopia. Price: NA
 

Blind Assessment: A complete, balanced Ethiopia: sweet, full but light-footed, with a soft, floral-toned acidity. The flowers and citrus are delicate but complex, shimmering over a touch of darker tones. "... A good beginner 's coffee; not too bold ... balanced," wrote one panelist. The beginner 's adjective probably indicates why this attractive coffee failed to provoke a higher rating: It is a bit underpowered, fading quickly in the aftertaste. But I suspect that many American coffee drinkers will love this gentle, roundly nuanced coffee.

Notes: A complete, balanced Ethiopia: sweet, full but light-footed, with a soft, floral-toned acidity. The flowers and citrus are delicate but complex, shimmering over a touch of darker tones. Yirgacheffe is the best-known and most celebrated of Ethiopia wet-processed coffees, famous for its often extravagant floral and citrus tones. From the 1998/99 crop.
